Safety, cost and compliance with internationally recognised UN Hazard Classifications and General Mixing Rules are among the most important factors with respect to storing and transporting explosives in a ready state.

When your explosive storage & transport containers need to conform to 1.4S UN Classification, Energetics Technology can offer you a solution. Our UN 1.4S Munitions Boxes prevent sympathetic detonation and contain blast and secondary fragmentation enabling personnel to store and transport different explosives in the same vehicle, thus providing the best safety available to personnel as well as offering the opportunity for cost effective combined transportation. Our UN 1.4S Munitions Boxes are fully tested and compliant to 1.4S UN Hazard Classification.
